Many boys and men are struggling — losing ground in the classroom, the workplace, and the family. What can be done to address this growing male malaise? Join Richard Reeves, author of the critically acclaimed new book Of Boys and Men, for a conversation about the increasing rates of failure and social alienation among males.

Richard Reeves is a father of three sons, a journalist, and a senior fellow in economic studies at the Brookings Institution where he directs the Future of the Middle Class Initiative. His research focuses on social mobility, inequality, and family change. Prior to joining Brookings, he was director of strategy to the UK’s Deputy Prime Minister.

The conversation will be moderated by Adam Davis, director of the Lisska Center for Intellectual Engagement, and Shiri Noy, associate professor for Anthropology & Sociology.

All alumni, families, students, faculty, and staff of Denison are invited to participate.

This event is part of the Lisska Center for Intellectual Engagement’s Minds Wide Open series which promotes civil discourse and intellectual engagement.
